Hyrule Warriors has an official Twitter account in Japan and a tweet that was sent out this morning teases a new character to be revealed in this week’s edition of Famitsu. According to the tweet, there’s a 98% chance we’ll see a new character revealed this week.

Translations of the magazine usually pop up a day or two before it officially goes on sale as media get their hands on it, so expect it soon. The roster of Hyrule Warriors is pretty full right now, but who would you like to see added to the game? Perhaps it’ll be another original character, similar to Lana, or one we know from the Zelda series already.

    TINGLE i called it

  • LevenThumps

    Most of the characters so far have been in Twilight Princess, with Link and Zelda even having Twilight Princess skins. I hope this new character is from a different game in the series. Even though I enjoy Twilight Princess, I would love it if other games got represented.

  • brian

    How about a Goron?

    • Alan Michael Hensley

      if they were to do a goron, or a zora, maybe bring in the masks from Major’s Mask for Link to use in the game?

      • Daniel Carvalho

        Or maybe Darunia and Ruto, together with Nabooru, Saria and Rauru. Heck, they could go as far as putting Din and Nayru from Oracle of Ages/Seasons, and make Farore appear as a playable character as well!

  • Redead Link

    Fi for sure

    • Alan Michael Hensley

      psh. its Navi for sure, “Hey listen” ftw

      • Francis Harbord

        Navi is already used for the tutorial, so…

      Master, I calculate 98% chance of being revealed as a playable character on the upcoming Zelda Musou game for Wii U. There is 50% chance that my attacks will be percentage-based, and 90% chance they’ll be based off on the many different powers your swords have had through the entire series.

      There’s also 2% chance that Famitu is trolling us, and the next character will be Tingle. In that case, I calculate 100% chance of me not showing up on that game for my own will!

      Also, theres 100% chance I’ll get a new sexy outfit!

      • Razo_E

        The batteries in your WiiRemote appear to be low as well..

    • Cutcopy

      can I just point out that if it does turn out to be Fi, then Hyrule Warriors has revealed it will have 6 playable female characters. That’s actually pretty amazing.

  • CEObrainz

    I’m 98% sure that it has something to do with the Master Sword…..

  • Weslee Hardin

    I want Dark Link

  • Mayoo

    I want Kiki!

  • greengecko007

    Keep the information and hype coming, and maybe this game will sell above expectations.

    • Fred

      I’m looking forward to this game. I love when games have 2-screen 2-player co-op. My wife and I will fully enjoy playing this together

      • Michael Legault

        It’s the best thing about the Wii U, that and off screen play. Anyone In a stable live-in relationship should be able to appreciate what the system does, who likes a tv hog? 😛

        • Fred

          I also like the asymmetric game play it makes it easier to play Nintendo with the kids. I take the hard job and I give them the easy job.

    • Rinslowe

      I’m going in with as little expectation as possible, lol. So pretty sure I’ll end up being one of those quietly happy with my investment by the end of it…
      I still think it’s going to be quite interesting seeing how it does in Japan. But hope the rest of the world gets in on it too.

      • Daniel Carvalho

        I believe it’ll sell very well. Those who have been complaining about the game never got into the Musou titles or any hack-and-slash, but are the minority within those commenting about the game. Aside from that, the hype’s been pretty good lately, and growing with each update.

        I don’t think it’ll sell as much as a escort title, but my predictions are for more copies sold than The Minish Cap – and that’s 1.43 million. I believe it’ll achieve those numbers by the end of the fiscal year!

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Kotake and Konume. Would be cool atleast 🙂

  • Qubonic


  • FilipiCn

    Princess Midna in her original form. ( that shown in the game ending)

    • Jackson five

      It would kinda be cool if midna could transform between her imp form & human(ish) form. Have different moves for each one.

      • FilipiCn

        Great idea man!! I agree!

  • Jackson five

    I would like Gabon. Agahnim from link to the past, or maybe someone from a link between world’s. A goron would be cool too.

    • Jackson five

      Typo. Obviously I meant ganon.

  • TheKnutMan

    The hero’s shade would be awesome

  • Alan Michael Hensley

    Skull Kid!!!! come on, do it!

  • BIG Franky

    There has got to be a playable Medli, correct? she would be pretty cool….even though she was kinda a pain in the ass to deal with in the Earth Temple. bring on MEDLI!

    • Jackson five

      Medli would be sweet. She could have a move where she hovers above the enemies and drops down with a sonic BOOM! Or something like that…

      • 00EpicGamer00

        And she could be the only character that can actually fly wherever you want. I’m sure Nintendo would put a time bar or something. So people aren’t “misusing” the feature. But it’d be cool. 🙂

        • Jackson five

          Yeah there’d be like a limit to how long you could fly at one time, maybe have an air attack while you’re up there along with a heavy landing that smashes down causing a radius attack. But yeah it would be cool. 😉

  • Marin, from Link’s Awakening.

  • majora :D

    Tingle, nuff said. (Waiting for haters)

  • 00EpicGamer00

    Since Twilight Princess seems to be getting allot of attention in this game, I’m going to assume it’s going to be another character from TP. But then again, Majora’s Mask got recognition with the moon being a summoning move. So, anythings possible.

  • Dominicruz

    I think is the might fairy Tingle! there iare a lot of people asking for him

    • Kaihaku

      The “98%” thing leads to me to think that it will probably be Fi. Too bad.

  • Jake

    Because this game seems to be some incarnation of Twilight Princess, I expect to see Ashei, Rusl, and/or the Spirit of the last Hero (the one who teaches you skills.)

  • Dominicruz

    People evil character are not going to be playable charcarter just heroes! don’t expect ganandorf,skullkid,ghirahim .maybe goron darunia,or sora from majora mask and Tingle or Sheik or kid link

    • 00EpicGamer00

      How do you know evil characters won’t be playable? It’s pretty common in the Dynasty Warrior games to have “evil” playable characters. Zant has been confirmed (I think) to be playable.

  • AM Real

    Definitely has to be Fi from Skyward Sword (and I guess every other Zelda game except Minish Cap) I wonder how they are gonna tie in all these characters from different eras and dimensions??

  • Arthur Jarret

    A Zora or a Goron… although I’d love Vaati – and Ganon hasn’t been shown yet either.

  • MajorRoe

    “The roster of Hyrule Warriors is pretty full right now”
    HA. Yeah, not even close.

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      Yeah! I am expecting tens of characters to be revealed in the upcoming months…

  • MujuraNoKamen


  • Jason Baldwin

    Am I the only who can care less about this button smashing, non Zelda series game?

  • Maikeru Shinigami

    Give me Skull Kid or give me death! Not really, just give me Skull Kid.

  • JJ

    Its either tingle or gannondorf.

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    The tweet is… a Skyward Sword reference.

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      Please… please give me what I need! I’m begging Nintendo!!! Give me my fabulousss Ghirahim <3

      Oh and Gor Ebizo :')

  • classicgamer20

    Please be Groose please be Groose

  • Guest

    Adult Malon plz

  • Kaihaku

    “The roster of Hyrule Warriors is pretty full right now…”

    For a normal game, yes… For a Musou game, the roster is just getting warmed up.
